Three of a kind



Reader Marta commented on my Shopping makes the world go round post, asking me to model my recent purchases. Unfortunately, I have been reaaaally tied up these days, doing work for my final thesis, with no free time whatsoever for an organized and proper outfit post. I managed, however, to shoot these two pictures last night, just before I went to bed. I'm wearing my two old favourites, the giant engagement ring necklace and another one with beads, that used to hold a locket that, unfortunately, fell off. I always wear those two together, but this time, along with them, I added my new find, the tree of life necklace. All three look great layered on top of each other as they are all made of the same dark gold/bronze coloured metal, which I find very versatile and flattering for my colouring.

Great timing, too. One of my favourite blog-friends, Sal of Already Pretty recently posted an amazing video tutorial on how to layer our own ordinary, plain necklaces to create a new statement piece that will transform any outfit in a second. Be sure to check it out!

And a small announcement: For the next month or so, posting and commenting will be scarce, due to architecture school final thesis work. I won't totally dissapear, though, so bear with me.
Soon...

1. Those three pieces look like they were MADE to be worn together. Awesome!

2. Thanks so much for the shout-out, beautiful. (Don't tell, but you're one of my faves, too. I am scheming to convince Mike that we should visit Greece sometime next year so I can hug you.)

3. My GOSH good luck will all the finals-related hoo-ha. You'll do great. I just know it.

I love the ring necklace!
as for the girls who can't manage to mix n match, there are always layered neckalaces sold as one (I usually drool over the juicy couture site) that need no effort at all

I love how you layered those necklaces! =) I'm definitely checking out Sal's video tutorial... layering jewelry is something I've never actually be able to do very well so I'm all keen to learn.

All the best for your architecture thesis! Even where I live I've heard stories about the crazy schedules the archi students have so am sure yours is equally insane. Good luck!

I love those pieces! And they look great together. Working on your final thesis must be hard work, so I wish you all the luck!

Oh and btw, I am hosting a Valentine's Day contest starting tomorrow, so check back at my website if you would like to enter!
